Animal Planet this Earth I see
Animal Planet: this Earth I see
Worthless than that in cruelty.
Tigers, jackals, vultures, sharks
Only for food, they prey: marks-
Line between them and Adam sons.
By massacre on land, on the sea,
Outshine we, others born on earth.
Religions try to link all births
As twisted they choke our breaths.
Heaven and hell tempt; we Dyes
To butcher brothers err we die-
Or roll in Politics' power game
That brings One power and fame.
The Bible said, 'Thou shan't kill'
The Qur'an tells, 'Show Grace to all'
Buddha said, 'Abstain of killing'
'Never desire others wealth'
'Isavasyopanishad' teaches; still-
I sit still as I see they kill.
Note: 'Isavasyopanishad' is one among the important ten Upanishads in Indian Philosophy.
